I am a state of Illinois certified and licensed Spanish teacher, as well as certified to teach English as a second or other language. (TESOL). I have taught in Chicago Public Schools and presently in my fifth year, teaching Spanish to CPS high school students in a federally funded program. I have tutored students privately for Spanish and for English language learners. I am patient, friendly and have a great sense of humor. I have excellent materials for all levels. I can cater to your needs from absolute beginner to specific language needs, i.e., medical or business terminology or helping you ace that class, exam or essay in Spanish or English!
